Hands on Experience
Your company or organization will become your laboratory, where you will continually apply what you are learning. You will also have opportunities to customize certain components of the program and design projects that address real issues you face on the job.
During your summer integrative experience, between your second and third semesters, you will pursue a research interest and begin the groundwork for your final project. Research topics are as diverse as the student groups and are often tailored to company specific issues or needs. You will receive one-on-one mentorship from one our leading faculty throughout the process. Examples of topics include:
- Providing a sustainable, livable wage to transitory workers
- Using information systems technology to improve business systems operation in nonprofit organizations
- Analysis of the company’s metrics, objectives, incentives and rewards at all organizational levels and comparing that with the company’s mission in order to assess alignment
- Creation of an annual publication: case studies in business ethics—collection of case studies written by executives (the students) for executives
